South Africa athlete Caster Semenya has been caught in a reoccurring web of uncertainty and controversy in the world of sport
Two-time Olympic 800m gold medallist Caster Semenya appears to be preparing for a career outside of athletics.
The two-time Olympic 800m gold medallist Caster Semenya appears to be preparing for a career outside of athletics after joining a women’s football club.
Semenya confirmed her agreement to join women’s football club JVW FC, a club owned by Banyana Banyana captain Janine van Wyk.
However, because this deal fell outside of the South African transfer window, she can only start playing competitively in 2020.
She will be training with the Johannesburg-based club for the time being.
From an athletics perspective, Semenya’s appeal is still pending.
She is fighting the regulations put in place to limit the testosterone levels of female athletes who compete in the middle distances.
